Janitorial and sanitation workers are essential to protecting us from COVID-19. Protecting them is just as important.
Workers in the janitorial and sanitation industry have always played a key role in protecting our quality of life. But with the current global pandemic showing no signs of dissipating, their contribution takes on a new level of importance. Sanitizing our environments matters more than ever.
AMMEX is offering several new blended vinyl and poly disposable gloves that provide excellent alternatives to nitrile and latex.
We’ve noted it before, and we note it again: Today’s market for disposable gloves is, in a word, difficult.
Now is a great time for disposable glove distributors to consider introducing their customers to the many positive qualities of vinyl gloves.
In the world of disposable gloves, nitrile is king.
The material, made from nitrile butadiene rubber or NBR, has become the standard across just about every industry. From medical needs to automotive repair, users in the front lines typically choose nitrile gloves.
Average sales prices of disposable gloves are going in one direction only: up.
The increased need for gloves worldwide, due to both the COVID-19 pandemic and a greater general awareness of health, safety, and hygiene, drives demand. Manufacturers simply cannot produce enough gloves to satisfy their customers.
COVID-19 is not going away, and if predictions are to be believed, its spread will increase this fall and winter with the arrival of flu season.
Average sales prices of disposable gloves, regardless of material type—nitrile, latex, and vinyl—are going up. Shortages of raw materials also constrain latex and nitrile production, which puts additional pressure on pricing.
The increased need for gloves worldwide continues to drive demand, due to both the COVID-19 pandemic and a greater general awareness of health, safety, and hygiene. Glove manufacturing’s inherent limitations—raw materials, labor, and capacity shortages—constrain supply.
|In 2020, demand for disposable gloves and personal protective equipment is at all-time highs. The global spread of the novel coronavirus has completely taken over the conversation—and the market—as glove manufacturers struggle to keep the supply chain moving.
Also on the rise, of course, is the cost of doing business. With shortages of raw materials and labor, and restrictions on who gets priority access to PPE, glove prices are going up. It’s not a matter of gouging, but simple economics: demand rises, supply drops, gloves get more expensive.

Exam-grade gloves, often referred to as medical gloves, were originally designed for non-surgical medical procedures. They differ from industrial-grade gloves due to one factor: rigorous factory-level testing. This testing is based on acceptable quality limits (AQL) set by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. An AQL limit sets a standard for how many gloves within a batch can fail testing. A low AQL (meaning a small number of defective gloves) for exam-grade gloves is necessary to ensure the glove is of a high enough quality that it can provide the proper barrier protection against extreme risks.
Did you know workers in the medical and dental industries use an average of 15 pairs of disposable gloves each day? That’s 3,960 pairs a year!
